check. make certain that they pay any fines that we establish. pay their taxes, which is a critical part of this whole comprehensive approach. give them a chance to earn their way into citizenship, learning english and the basics about america's history. and basically, four, making sure that the amount of illegal immigrants that are -- the amount of legal immigration allowed in the united states is based on the state of our economy. we are going to enshrine in here the principle that when it comes to job openings, americans get the first grab at it. americans get first opportunity. and that's the way it should be. we're going to make certain beyond that that there are opportunities for others. and there are a variety of different ways we approach it. let me close by just addressing one issue near and dear that i was -- happy to have both chuck and john refer to. it has been 12 years, 12 years since i introduced the dream act. i never gave up because when you meet these young people, you can't give up. but there were some disappointing times and some sad times. and a lot of tears shed whe
taxes and a penalty, and learning english. a solution eluded past presidents including george w. bush. >> legal immigration is one of the top concerns of the american people. congress' fail ture to act is a disappointment. >> reporter: obama did announce hess administration would stop deporting some young undocumented immigrant but was taken to task at a town hall for not doing something bigger. >> you promised that. a promise is a promise. with all due respect -- >> what i promised was that i would work every single day as hard as i can to make sure that everybody in this country, regardless of who they are, what they look like, where they come from they'd have a fair shot at american dream. >> reporter: still, hispanic americans, the fastest growing voter bloc, helped propel obama to a second term. a wake-up call for republicans. >> i do know there are a lot of democrats in congress who once and for all want to solve this problem, fix this mess, a broken immigration system, and many of always degree with that. >> want to bring in brianna keilar from the white house. first of all, pr
checks. they should pay taxes and a penalty, and they should learn english. i think we're still waiting to see as the details are flushed out in these plans as they become more specific, you would think obviously that whatever pathway the president is proposing is probably going to fall to the left of something that republicans have signed to in the senate. i think that's a fair assumption. also the senate planned like to tie border security directly to the pathway to citizenship. and we don't think the white house is totally on board with that. but they're also not completely poo-pooing it because they're trying to capitalize on this moment now when republicans are also along with democrats saying something has to be done on the issue. >> so some are saying that this was thunder stealing in terms of the -- the senators announcing their proposals yesterday. the president announcing his proposals today. and that there was actually quite a bit of backroom dealing in order to convince the president maybe not to do certain things. how did all of that play out? >> reporter: that's right. thi
this in two buckets. one bucket is reducing costs. the other bucket is increasing taxes. if you think you can get this all done, to the amount we have to do with, let's say, a ten-year program, you're going to have to dig very deep. we need a third bucket and it is sitting right there and we should use it. it is energy. fracking, for example, has created 1.75 million jobs. billions and billions of dollars going to the states and federal coffers. we have more energy than anybody in the world and if we, in an environmentally friendly way, acquire it, go on the federal lands, do it in the right way, we'll get that extra piece of cash, and bring manufacturing and jobs back to the united states or create them in the united states because of our energy. >> the last four years of the obama presidency was marred by not great relationships between the business community and the administration. you are one of the key faces of the business community. have you reached out to the president or has he reached out to you since his election to say let's make this four years look very different? >> just rememb
. >> if you politicians would only stop talking about more taxes and more gun bans and more regulations on honest people, and spend a little bit of that rhetoric and a little bit of that energy going after violent criminals of complete breakdown of our criminal justice system and the fact we don't even prosecute criminals with guns anymore, because the system has collapsed, maybe then we would make progress. >> also at some point we have got to say enough is enough. otherwise when the nra will not say that you should not permit the civilian sale of bazookas. what we're talking about is a weapon crafted for war that floats around the streets of our cities, that puts our police in a position of being outgunned by the bad guys, that has kids killing kids with them. >> since the newtown, connecticut, shooting that left 27 dead, the nra says 500,000 more people have joined its membership. >>> anderson cooper, don't miss this, taking on the gun violence debate tomorrow night. he'll take a good long look at both sides of the issue. we're calling it "guns under fire," a town hall special tomorr
